    Thanks! I love the brass too! I’ve been polishing it a little throughout the week. I have yet to use any form of serious brass cleaner to get in the crevices. I really appreciate the full name. I just looked him up. The Italian stiletto is one of my favorite knife patterns. I’ve been considering one of the more modern Kershaw launch stilettos.

    I wish that they made scales like this but with the slots for the tooth pick and tweezers. I use to carry mine all the time but now it's a drawer queen, went back to the plastic scale version just because those 2 tools come in so handy.

    I've found the toothpick useful for obvious reasons, but I have never been able to successfully use the tweezers for anything, especially removing a splinter. It's just not made from a stiff enough metal. But YMMV.

    I have been EDC'ing a Pocketweez(original model) on my keychain for years for this reason.

    Custom scales?

    These are a bit pricy, but there may be others out there:

    The combination of SAKstraight pin and tweezers works pretty well in my experience. I know my wife has come to expect me to have these on me at all times. The kids withdrew in fear when they’d hear mom telling me, “quick, straight pin, and tweezers” :)

    Having a dog and taking long walks in the woods, I have found the small tweezers on my SAK invaluable for getting stickers out from between dog paw pads. Now living in Texas, where so much of the vegetation has stickers, thorns, or cactus needles, my SAK tweezers are almost a daily use item. Our dog thanks me for them.

    I never had good experiences with the SAK tweezers as well. I use uncle bills sliver grippers.
    But since I started sharpening the tweezers worked a lot better.

    Got the idea from this vid on youtube (somewhat near the end):

    More or less the same here. Those are the only part of a SAK that seem quite questionable.

    But then I very rarely have a use for tweezers, so no Pocketweez for me.

    Since 2007 I have found a couple of knives that work for my actual needs and I’ve settled on those to the exclusion of others.

    1) A Swiss Army Knife (EDC user)
    2) Spyderco Delica 4 (EDC one handed clip it emergency knife)

    I’ve tried a bunch of others through the years, but nowadays I’m content with these.
